The Paradise God has prepared
Previous Image | Next Image
Description: Explanatory note in regard to Paradise from the Hebrew-Greek Study Bible (compiled and edited by Spiros Zodhiates, Th.D.):

What is this place called Paradise? :-


The word paradeisos, "paradise"," originally comes from the ancient Iranian, pairidaēza, and means "a garden with a wall." The Septugint translation of the Hebrew word in Genesis 2:8 is paradeisos. In the New Testament the word occurs only three times:II Corinthians 12:4; Luke 23:43; Revelation 2:7.

It was indicated as a place where spirits go immediately after death, which is also the place that Christ was going to go once His spirit was separated from his body. The continuation of the existence of the personality is also clearly intimated in the story of the rich man and Lazarus in Luke 16:19-31.


Luke 16:19-31

There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:

And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,
And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house:
For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.

Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.

And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.

And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.



The paradise of II Corinthians 12:4 is the same as that spoken of by Christ in Luke 23:24. In Revelation 2:7 the word is spoken pf in an eschatological* sense as being a gift to be given to the one who overcomes. It is evidently the place where the disembodied personalities as spirits or souls of the believers go immediately at death to be with Christ.

* eschatology [es-k uh- tol- uh-jee]

NOUN (THEOLOGY.)

1. any system of doctrines concerning last, or final, matters, as death, the Judgment, the future state, etc.

2. the branch of theology dealing with such matters.

II Corinthians 12:4 How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.
 
Luke 23:43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.

Revelation 2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
